What type of soil does a ZZ plant need?

The ZZ plant luckily doesn’t need any special type of potting soil: any well-drained potting soil will do. As for feeding it, apply a balanced liquid houseplant fertilizer (20-20-20) once a month when watering.

People also ask, how do you prepare soil for ZZ plant?

ZZ plants are tough and able to survive in a variety of different soils. However, the key factor to good health in your ZZ is proper drainage. Most store-bought potting soils are fine, but to ensure better drainage, mix one-part cactus soil or perlite to three parts potting soil.

Secondly, how do I know when to repot my ZZ plant? ZZs should be replanted every two years into a pot that is one size larger than the one is previously lived in. While trimming back roots may work for other houseplants, ZZs have rhizomes, which look similar to bulbs or tubers, under the surface. That means that in order to expand, your ZZ must have room to grow.
